Custom ARMOUR-Wood Signs Are Made of Both Metal and Weed


Custom ARMOUR-Wood Signs

With the strength of a traditional wood sign, with an added high gloss aluminum covering for a finish that will last, ARMOUR-Wood Signs truly are the best of both worlds.

ARMOUR-Wood Signs have a solid, plywood core permanently sealed with aluminum sheeting factory bonded to both sides of the surface. The thickness and density of this sign board makes it one of the strongest sign panel products in the industry with greater impact and wind resistance than Alumalite, Alumacorr, Dibond or Wood Painted Sign Panels.

The Aluminum sheet bonded to the solid wood core comes with a high gloss finish. All edges of the sign are sealed with a plastic 1/2" cap which not only protects the product from moisture, but also creates a finished look. When using a contrasting color like black edge cap on a white sign, the black edge cap automatically serves as a decorative 1/2" border on the sign. If you don't want a border on your white sign, choose white trim cap instead so the trim cap will blend in.

When you need a sturdy rigid sign panel designed to last for many years outdoors, ARMOUR-Wood business signage is highly recommended for permanent outdoor signs, construction site signs, real estate signs, wall mounted signs, post and panel signs, hanging and fence mount signs.
